From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.

Not sure if relevant but I've noticed in Hunt: Showdown I keep going too far in an item selector, but only when scrolling downwards. However it doesn't happen outside of games (Xwayland issue?)

This was happening to me on X11 when Plasma 6 released. It got fixed on the next patch.

So does it not happen on X11?

Other than that, i have to clean my scrollwheel sensor once in a while, not because i'm disgusting, but because my current mouse has this issue, otherwise i get a similar experience as yours

Yup it's fine on X11 and on Windows
